One of the most unique things about appendTo is the fact that we are a fully distributed company. We do have a central office, located in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, but nobody actually works there. Everyone in the company has the freedom to work from wherever they feel makes them the most productive.
The Back Story
When appendTo began, the initial team was distributed between Omaha, Denver and Chang Mai, Thailand. Thus, the initial choice of working remotely was made for us.
As we started to form the company, hire more people and plan for additional growth, we realized that there wasn’t anything holding us back from a full commitment to always be distributed. This morphed into a guiding philosophy for the company and has permeated into everything that we do, with the ability to “Work from Anywhere” becoming one of our core values.
As a company, appendTo has made the commitment to its clients and employees to always be distributed. We’ve learned enough about distributed work along the way for us to consider this one of our core strengths. Even our employees agree, we often hear they feel more connected at appendTo then other environments that were physically co-located.
